Alexandrite, Mircofaceted Green Moonstone, Gemstones, Sterling Silver, Earrings
A stunning pair of earrings showcasing sparkling 12mm x 6mm marquises of lab-grown faceted alexandrite which change colour from purple to blue depending on the light, alongside four wonderful micro-faceted 2mm x 2mm spheres of semi-precious green moonstone. Each of these impressive gemstones is elegantly hand-set in a stylish sterling silver claw setting.
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Singapore’s incredible botanical gardens, where gorgeous, captivating blooms of purple flowers inescapably arrest the senses in this 82-hectare paradise.
The most widely-recognised birthstone for June, alexandrite is named after Alexander II of Russia, supposedly having been first discovered by miners in the Ural Mountains on his birthday.
One of June’s many birthstones, moonstone bears the symbolic associations of its celestial namesake, namely love and renewal, famously explored by romantic poets such as Shelley.
42mm long (~1 ½ inches), these dazzling gemstone earrings will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of their inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented pair which makes the perfect gift.
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome.
